Perhaps one day gmp was outdated but instead of running "sudo port upgrade outdated" you instead ran "sudo port install x" where "x" is a port that depends on gmp; MacPorts would have upgraded gmp first, without knowing that you prefer to uninstall the old version. Same for py27-nose, possibly in a different instance.

You can uninstall them this way:

sudo port uninstall gmp @5.0.5_0 py27-nose @1.2.1_1

Or if you want to get rid of all inactive ports you can use:

sudo port uninstall inactive
